Wolverine’s new solo comic will find the hero exiled in the Canadian wilds

Coming up later this year and a part of the new X-Men “From the Ashes” era, Wolverine’s solo series takes him back to basics.


Marvel Comics has taken the wraps off of the upcoming Wolverine series, which will be a part of the post-Krakoan age. The new tale will be unfolding this summer, with flagship number ones debuting this July through September. Landing on the later side, will be Wolverine’s new title.

Once again set to be a solo comic starring one of the X-Men’s biggest stars, this new Wolverine series will find Logan losing himself in the Canadian wilderness. He’s not exactly taking a vacation though, as he’s exiled himself with the intention of taking his life back to basics. As we see in the new press release however, that’s something that Nightcrawler would rather not see happen.

And if Kurt getting in his way won’t be enough, there’s a cadre of villains who’ll be assailing Wolverine as well, plus a mystery big-bad lurking in the shadows. Obviously all of this takes place after the Sabertooth War story that’s running right now from writer Ben Percy.

Taking up the reigns from him will be Saladin Ahmed, who’ll be joined by artist Martín Cóccolo.

Ahmed and Cóccolo’s new run begins deep in the Canadian wilderness where Wolverine reunites with his wolf pack and embraces the beast within! But Wolverine’s more than an animal—he’s a soldier. And a new war is brewing. As Nightcrawler struggles to remind Logan that he’s part of a family, Logan’s exile is violently disturbed by his most hated foes, and with each battle, a new existential threat gathers strength. This ancient villain has been bubbling under the surface of the Marvel Universe since the days of myth, and once unleashed, will dramatically alter the scope of Wolverine’s storied history and force him to prove himself a hero like never before. 

There’s a killer in the woods – and as Wolverine’s attempt at peace is shattered, an old enemy will re-emerge as a new villain rises that will bring Logan to the brink of his berserker rage. But Nightcrawler knows his old friend is capable of doing what’s right, and before long, Logan will have to unleash his claws, push his healing factor to the limit and demonstrate he’s the best there is at what he does once and for all – nice be damned! Note to collectors: the new series kicks off with a key first appearance and a major addition to the lore of Wolverine! 

“When I was a kid, Wolverine was the coolest character in comics,” Ahmed shared. “That hasn’t changed a whole lot for me, so when Marvel approached me about a new solo Logan book, it was an instant YES.”

“Logan is simultaneously a mythic hero, an abused animal, and a man of flesh, blood, and adamantium,” he continued. “Our story is about what happens when these parts of him all pull in opposite directions – and threaten to rip Logan to pieces that won’t come back together again.”

“I could talk for hours about why I decided to take this relaunch, but you want my real answer? It’s Wolverine. That’s it,” Cóccolo shared. “It’s a dream come true for me, and I can’t believe I get to tell my younger self every day that I’m drawing WOLVERINE. Saladin’s exploration of the character and the story is incredibly exciting as a concept as well as visually engaging, and I can’t wait for people to finally see it!”
